When I read there was a blog hop called Hop Against Homophobia, I wanted in immediately! I’ve been a long time supporter for gay rights, in fact all of my family and friends have as well, so I feel honored to be part of this for the International Day Against Homophobia which is May 17th. Thank you Erica, K-Lee and NJ!
Whenever I read something or see someone propagating homophobia, it’s like a knife driving into my heart. How could I be part of such an intelligent race that still harbors such deep fear of people and beliefs that are different? Whether it’s intolerance against people other than Caucasian, religion other than Christian, or love other than heterosexual, I don’t understand what goes on in these discriminators minds. How they feel justified in preaching humanity when they deny the most basic human nature...love.
Every time I feel like the human race has crossed one hurdle, another seems to pop up. To deny a same-sex couple the right to marry is like telling an African-American they have to sit at the back of the bus. It’s just absolutely WRONG. It’s a step backward for equality, and haven’t we’ve already seen through history just how wrong it is to deny equality? Nothing matters but the heart of a person. Not their skin color, not who they worship, and certainly not who they love.
One thing I love about the explosion of ebook publishing is the breaking down of all types of censure. Readers are now able to explore different passions and a side of sexuality that hadn't been so easily available. So many different love stories are visited now, from male/male love to multiple partners, and I’m thrilled to be part of this turn of events. I feel like writers of M/M romances are the forefront of a revolution, that we are paving the way for a change tomorrow.
I recently wrote my first M/M romance novella title You Can Run, through Loose Id and I’m offering the PDF ebook of this title to a lucky winner! To enter, simply leave a comment to this blog. The winner will be chosen by my lovely five year old son (whom I'm always telling it's okay to have a boyfriend) by picking a winning name from a bowl.
